Day Five – “Abba, Father.”

Friday, June 6th, 2014

Galatians 4:4-7 (NIV)

But when the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to sonship. Because you are his sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, “Abba, Father.” So you are no longer a slave, but God’s child; and since you are his child, God has made you also an heir.

Reflection:

Galatians 4 sets our relationship with God as Father all in its proper context.  It was according to God’s desire, God’s set time, and by God’s plan.  And when that plan was accomplished, it was by His Spirit, poured out into our hearts, that we come to cry out to God our Father.

Our life of prayer, beginning with, “Our Father” (”Abba, Father”) begins here.  Let’s spend some time today thanking God for sending His Son and for sending His Spirit, that we may know Him as Father.  Let’s rejoice in worship, celebrating our Father in heaven.  Let’s also pray, according to the gospel truth expressed in Galatians 4, for those who we know who do not yet know Him as “Abba, Father.”  Let’s ask our Father that He will move in their lives, that they, too, may come to know Him as Father.
